Emergency Preparedness for Caregivers


James Kremple, AA County Office of Emergency Management

Having an emergency preparedness kit, being informed of local hazards, and practicing emergency preparations could make you more ready as a caregiver in an emergency. October 13, 2021; 6:30 pm North County Office/Hein Bldg. 7320 Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie

Stories Love Music
 

Ilyana Kadushin, Executive Director of Stories Love Music, Inc.

Individuals with dementia feel disconnected from the world around them and may wonder “am I being seen and heard?” This can be true for Caregivers, also. When we are isolated, we wonder if anyone wants to hear our stories. Music speaks right to our hearts and our human experiences. We all have stories to tell and music brings it to light. November 17, 2021; 6:30 pm Virtual Session via Zoom

Reducing Stress, Sadness and Other Difficult Feelings During the Holidays as a Caregiver

Juggling caregiving with the rest of life is tough enough. But when the holiday season rolls around, it’s downright exhausting, especially when we’re expected to be joyful.

  • Identifying signs of caregiver burnout in yourself and what to do about it
  • Managing challenging feelings during the holiday season when you are expected to be in a good mood
  • Why seeking help with caregiving before the New Year is a good idea
